So out here in not so sunny California it has been raining a lot, like a lot a lot.

Does anyone else have the issue where their front brake feels soft in heavy rain? Checked the fluids and it is not that. Bike only has 2k miles so i can't imagine it's a hose issue.

Thanks!

Hoi WestCoast,


It is fact that the OEM brake pads are not the high performer. They last long and will bring a mileage, that you never knew before.

Additionally brake pads tend to become vitreous if they are used softly and without some hard brake exercises in between. This may cause the soft feeling during braking without real deceleration.
Look for a test track, make some hard braking and then check if the deceleration behavior has changed.
